    • Faux News "Distorting Not Reporting"

      The hostility between the Fox News Channel and its television news competitors, usually barely submerged, exploded into open recriminations Friday over a newspaper advertisement in which Fox accused its competitors of missing the story of the so-called antitax protests in Washington last Saturday.

      All of the other networks named — CNN, MSNBC, ABC News, NBC News and CBS News — issued statements and details about the extent of their coverage. The networks accused Fox News, a channel with a reputation for having a conservative point of view in much of its programming, of putting blatantly false information in the ad, which ran in three papers: The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and The New York Post.

        This scuffle has been brewing for several weeks now with the major news networks getting caught with its britches down. It was Fox, right, wrong, or indifferent, that broke the story on Van Jones and ACORN. All of the news organizations simply dropped it for whatever reason.

        The problem is all major news networks have some bias. But the media's love with Obama has shonwn on more than one occassion and it could be argued that the media, generally, are giving a free pass to the President on some very difficult issues. I have been particularily disappointed that the media is giving way too much coverage to anyone who has a Nazi sign with Obama or Bush on it. Personally all media are useful idiots.

          • Preventative healthcare costs more according to some. Well here's one section of society where just such a thing could save money:

            Seniors Add To Health Care Bill By Falling Down
            Reducing preventable falls would reduce injuries and costs

            One of the major health problems facing senior citizens may be preventable. Government statistics show that every day elderly Americans fall and are injured. Those falls usually results to trips to the emergency room and contribute to a significant portion of the nation's health care bill.

            • This guy's medical expenses cost the British taxpayers $165,000/year. Sorry if this sounds harsh, but here's a guy who's eating himself to death and is going to receive free surgery worth $33,000 to try and save his life. Where's his accountability? Does Britain require all citizens to put into the medical system, or is it just the ones who are employed?

              980-Pound Man Needs 'Life-Saving' Operation

              Tuesday, October 20, 2009

              Doctors blame a British man's 20,000-calorie a day diet for causing him to balloon up to a whopping 980-pounds and leaving him in need of a life-saving operation.

              Paul Mason, 48, needs a nearly $33,000 life-saving operation after a compulsive eating disorder left him "super-obese."

              Mason scoffs three family-sized takeout meals a night and wolfs down roasts like snacks.

              He has spent much of the past eight years in bed at his home in Ipswich in Suffolk, England.

              His health care costs taxpayers an estimated $165,000 a year.

              And now he needs drastic stomach surgery to curb his eating and keep him alive, which the country's National Health Services will have to foot the bill for.

              Mason will travel in a 5-ton ambulance specially built for obese people at a cost of $148,000 to get the surgery.

              Mason's girth may distinguish him as the world's fattest man. The previous world's fattest man, Manuel Uribe, once weighed an unbelievable 1,230 pounds, but has lost more than 500 pounds after following a specially designed, low-carb diet.

              "This man is very ill and this is life-saving surgery," a National Health Services Suffolk spokesman said of Mason. "The nature of his illness is psychological and the NHS has a duty to help him. He is in a very fragile state and needs help. We are exploring all options for transporting him from his home to hospital but we have now ruled out an airlift."

              "The most important aspect of transporting him is preserving his dignity and looking after his safety. We have not had anything like this before," the spokesoman added.

              Susie Squire, of the Taxpayers' Alliance, said: "While it is important to get this man the medical attention he needs, cost-effective methods must be used."

              • Still think private health insurance companies have your best interests at heart? Think again...

                Insurer under fire for cutting coverage

                Ian Pearl suffers from muscular dystrophy. He uses a wheelchair and a ventilator, and in less than a month and a half he’s scheduled to lose his health insurance.

                His insurance company, Guardian, decided to cancel a series of old policies in three states, leaving Ian without coverage. His family sued, and their lawyers discovered an internal company e-mail that referred to high cost policies like Ian’s as “dogs.”

                The company has apologized, but for now, they’re going forward with their policy cancellations. The Pearl family is appealing to the Obama administration for help – adding their voices to calls for health care reform.

                Once you start costing too much money, they'll find a way to pull the plug.

                  From practical point of view not bad at all, provided world is already overpopulated.
                  "Less dogs = more oxygen" they say in Nigeria (Senator Uzamere will confirm )

                  On the other hand, for those like Ian, there clearly was a way to avoid it and they knew it was coming. First of all , why did he get sick?
                  Second, responsibility still lies with his family who didn't throw him off the chair in the busy highway once they decided not to bear the burden of supporting him.

                  Simple as that.

                  • 1st - We don't know why he got sick. It says on his Facebook site he has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a type of Muscular Dystrophy. Chances are it wasn't avoidable.

                    Ian Pearl's Facebook page

                    2nd - How can his family support him without access to medical care??? Are they supposed to practice DIY care?

                      I am sure he willfully inflicted that muscle dystrophy upon himself. Probably fraudster had Munchausen syndrome and destroyed his own muscles to gain some attention and free care.

                      As to his immediate family, once they decided not to support him they could have at least threw him off his wheelchair in the middle of busy highway and be done with it.
                      But no, they decided to let him live and face all this misery!

                      Now they blame insurance companies to avoid their own responsibilies...
